Gold Capped: Quick Auctions Poster does the undercutting for you {WoW}

Sep 23rd 2010 5:23AM Woot. Looking forward to the competition taking this article on faith and getting perma-banned. Less competition = more profits for me.

Enter to win an Ethereal Soul-Trader {WoW}

Cataclysm: Stylish overcloaks! {WoW}

Feb 23rd 2010 5:40PM Now if they could only stop weapons from clipping through the cloak... I have cloaks that look fine, but turn them off because I can't stand the clipping.

FunMail adds instant images to Facebook status & MMS {TUAW.com}

Nov 20th 2009 5:23PM I'm pretty impressed. The facebook integration's really smooth and overall the app feels just like the iPhone messaging client, which makes it really easy to jump right in and use.

The link is a little surprising if you're used to normal MMS, but I like the fact that they added a simple WAP version of the service behind the link to allow non-iPhone folks to try out FunMail by replying in kind.

BoA transfers between factions aimed for patch 3.3 {WoW}

Oct 16th 2009 8:24PM $5? You should have to pay with honor points. After all you're blatently supporting the "enemy".

Patch 3.2.2 Hunters see changes to Bestial Wrath {WoW}

Sep 14th 2009 9:00PM Doing the math, I get - given a PvE scenario of BW every 60 seconds (assumes the pet is alive, talents, etc.)

Hunter
- was 10% increase * 30% uptime = 3% increase
- 3.2.2 10% passive increase + 10% increase * 17% uptime = 11.7% increase

Pet
- was 50% increase * 30% uptime = 15% increase
- 3.2.2 50% increase * 17% uptime = 8.5% increase

Using the ElitistJerks spreadsheet/simulator (no I don't hit these numbers in real life, but I trust that a perfect wow-playing robot would):

No BW Now 3.2.2
Hunter 3500 3600 3900
Pet 2875 3300 3120
Total 6375 6900 7020

So it's about a 1.7% buff if the pet stays up.

If the pet does die, I can put out about 49% of my normal dps now. At 3.2.2 that'll go all the way up to 53% - still not the spec for petless fights.

Why am I suddenly so popular? {WoW}

Aug 17th 2009 7:47PM Speaking as one of the the launch tanks that gave up, I'd say you're right. I've been a raid leader and guild master and healed and dps'd through Hyjal and BT back in BC, but it wasn't until I leveled my DK in Wrath that I came to really appreciate how challenging tanking can be. My DK's still geared and spec'd to tank, but I'm back to the resto druid :-)

We Know Girls earn Champion of Ulduar [update: not] world first {WoW}

May 12th 2009 3:02PM ...and it's refreshed. If you find more, please just queue the guilds as described above - it only takes about 10 mins to update - rather than spamming here.

We Know Girls earn Champion of Ulduar [update: not] world first {WoW}

May 12th 2009 2:48PM Like any similar site, GuildOx will take a while to pick up guilds that haven't been submitted into it for a search. I've added the two guilds mentioned in the comments.

Due to the fact that Armory holds dates for achievements, it should correct itself shortly.

If you find your guild, or the guild you're fanboiing isn't in there, it's as simple as submitting it in the top right of the site.
